Responsive Site Design - Improve Performance and User Experience

  • Published in Insights

What is responsive design? Quite simply, it means your web site and all its web pages look good on all devices – desktops, tablets and smartphones. 

This is different than having a separate mobile website, which is better than no mobile compatibility at all, but Google ranks you much better if your site is responsive as opposed to a separate mobile version. A responsive site is built as one site using HTML and CSS styling to make the objects on a Web page resize, hide, shrink, enlarge, move, etc. to make it look good on any screen.

What all this means is if you don't have a responsive site, you could be alienating a large portion of your potential customers that primarily use a mobile device for virtually all their web surfing. See how your website ranks on Google's Mobile-Friendly Test. If Google doesn't rank your site's mobile-friendliness as poor, this directly affects your search engine rankings, making sites with no mobile versioning the lowest ranked, separate mobile sites are ranked second, and responsive are the best.
